May 16, 1978 (30th Parliament, 3rd Session)

PC

Mr. Mazankowski

Progressive Conservative

1. Does the Department of Agriculture agree with the forecast of Mr. E. S. Boyko, Assistant Director of the Agriculture Division of Statistics Canada, that realized net income of Canadian farmers will decline by 6.1 per cent during 1978 and, if not, what is the Department's forecast?
2. Will 1978 be the third consecutive year in which realized net farm income will have declined due to rising farm operating costs which are not being met by increased income and, if so, what specific actions is the Department planning to take to reverse this disastrous trend?
